A top secret experiment intended to produce a superhuman has gone terribly wrong. Now the creators, trapped in a remote desert outpost, are being pursued ruthlessly by their creation. With the door sealed from within, there is no way out. Written by

Government agents working in an outpost in the desert stumble across a body and eventually manage to bring it back to life. This here was a gigantic mistake because when the thing wakes up it goes on a killing spree. Soon the scientist (Lance Henriksen) who helped bring it back is trapped inside with his family.
Wes Craven was the Executive Producer of this thing and it went into production as the third film in THE HILLS HAVE EYES series. I'm not sure why it was changed or when but viewing the film today it strikes you as one of those awful direct-to-VHS type of films that was showing how far the genre had slipped. As the film stands today, it really has zero in connection to THE HILLS HAVE EYES and I'm going to guess that, perhaps, the bald character here was originally going to be the Pluto character but they decided to just make this a stand alone picture.
Either way, this is a really bad movie that has very little going for it. There are all sorts of problems but you can start with the screenplay, which really doesn't have a single original idea going on. It certainly doesn't help that you don't care for any of the characters and you don't care what happens to any of them. To make matters worse, the killer is just a regular guy with some sort of strange thing that comes out of his mouth to kill people. This here is incredibly boring and just adds to the lifeless nature of the picture.
I thought Claire Stansfield was easily the best thing about the picture and without her it would have been completely worthless. MIND RIPPER is a really awful movie that should be avoided at all costs.
